Mental Health Awareness Town Hall

Tuesday, April 23, 2019

4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

Midtown Student Center, Student Center Theater

The Student Government Association (“SGA”) is sponsoring this town hall event to allow members of the university community to participate in an open dialogue about mental health awareness and stand up against the stigma.  A series of questions will be asked to participating panelists in regards to mental illness, mental health awareness, and self-care. Many individuals tend to attach negative stigmas to mental health conditions at a far higher rate than to other diseases and disabilities. This stigma affects not only the number of individuals seeking treatment, but also the number of resources available for proper treatment. Stigma and misinformation can feel like overwhelming obstacles for someone who is struggling with a mental health condition. We hope that the conversation we have planned will help to educate students and members of the university community who also help those students struggling with mental health issues to feel comfortable and welcomed on our campuses.

Panelists are: Ms. Sharon Guck, Coordinator, CHOICES, Dr. Ree LeBlanc Gunter, Director, WCSU Counseling Center and Mrs. Jesenia Minier-Delgado Chief Diversity Officer with the Office of Diversity and Equity. More panelists will be announced.
